WHO WE ARE
The Livermore-Pleasanton-Dublin Branch of AAUW, is one of over 1000 branches nationwide, representing more than 100,000 members who seek personal lifelong development and advocate social change and public policy consistent with gender equity.

Membership – Your AAUW branch membership has been vital in helping advance gender and racial equity during this challenging time. The pandemic has been particularly devastating for women and people of color, but with your support we’ve pushed for much-needed COVID relief and paid-leave benefits, expanded voting access and education, and published important research on student debt and the power gap in colleges and universities. We rely on members like you to help us meet the challenges today’s women and girls face–and build a brighter future for everyone. Questions or more information, contact our membership chair.
